Mice in Maryland
House Mice are the most common rodent pest in most parts of the world and Maryland is no exception. Mice can enter a building through a hole of a size of a dime. They can introduce fleas, lice, mites and other parasites that could potentially make you sick. Mice can also chew on wires and potentially cause a fire as well as other structural damage to your property. One mouse can produce up to a hundred droppings a day that can spread bacteria and germs and contaminate your food.
Two types of mice are most common in Baltimore and throughout the state of Maryland. The house mouse is a smaller rodent that have a slightly pointed nose; small, black, somewhat protruding eyes and larger ears. They are generally grayish brown with a gray or buff belly. The deer mouse has white feet, usually white undersides and brownish upper surfaces. Their tails are relatively long, sometimes as long as the head and body. Their tails are also sharply bi-colored. In comparison to house mice, deer mice have larger eyes and ears. Droppings are rod-shaped and pointed on both ends.
Rodent infestations can cause considerable damage to infested buildings. Rodent populations can grow rapidly and steadily. Getting rid of mice can be a tricky task as they are very elusive creatures. It requires extensive mouse knowledge and experience to control them. You should look for entrance points and areas where they spend most of their time and target those areas either by preventing their entry and / or eliminating the mouse population that's already established in your home.
We use exclusion methods along with rodent control devices and products to get and keep mice under control.

Are mice dangerous?
Yes. The deer mouse transmits the potentially fatal Hanta-virus Pulmonary Syndrome. The disease can be transmitted through contact with mouse carcasses, or by breathing in particles of urine droplets of infected deer mice. Micro droplets of mouse urine can cause allergies in children. House Mice can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home and introduce various parasites and bacteria. Mouse can contaminate much more food than it eats.
Why do I have them?
Mice are commensal rodents; that is, they share space with humans and partially depend upon us to survive. They require food, shelter and water in order to survive and therefore are always looking for them. They can enter a hole less that 1/4" in diameter. Most structures are not sealed appropriately, leaving many entry points for rodents.
